As applications are designed, redesigned, or even simply thought about at a high level, we frequently think about technical barriers along side business needs. Business needs may dictate that a new architecture move forward, but technical limitations can sometimes counter how far forward – unless there is something to bridge the gap. The new Neutron network integration between Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) provides such a bridge for business and technical solutions.

Primary Use Cases

While there are numerous things that the aforementioned integration enables, I’d like to highlight three use cases:

  1. The ability to support applications that require both scale up and scale out technologies simultaneously for different segments of the application.
  2. The ability to support software defined networking (SDN) in virtualization along with overlay, encapsulation, and security groups.
  3. The ability the manage the network topology from a single management platform for both the virtualization environment and the OpenStack environment.

The first use case is arguably the most powerful. For example, a new e-commerce application design calls for the front end, middleware, and business intelligence to all have the ability to scale out and then back in on demand based on sales. This is clearly a workload suited for RHOSP. But because of service level agreements around performance, backups, and the stateful nature of the workload, the back end database needs to continue to reside in traditional virtualization. The database workload is better suited for RHV.

However, the front end and the back end still need to talk to each other in order for the application to work. Up until now, there were two primary options:
